    I guess I may have to do without gmail access on my iPad.
    Maybe so then.

    I've not had probs on any of my four Gmail accounts since doing the steps I posted, though. All my accounts are working fine on iPad 1 and 2, and iPhone 4S. All are on iOS 5.1.1, and none of my accounts are set up via Exchange, if that helps to know.

    Same boat

    I am experiencingthe same thing. Both my iPhone en my iPad are saying imap.gmail.com not responding since 8.8.12. I tried the following, without luck:
    A) delete gmail account and started from zero
    B) turning off/on devices
    C) accessed gmail 'captcha' page as suggested by other forums/users
    D) changed password in gmail (note that I can also access my gmail account from the laptop or the desktop iMac)
    E) tried the weird thing of putting imap.googlemail in advanced settings (imap prefix)

    It is VERY frustrating. I hope one could find a solution soon.

    None of my accounts have any Imap path prefix, but all four accounts are functioning properly on the identical server port -- 993. (I had nothing to do with these settings; they just auto-populated when I added my email accounts to the email app originally.)

    I forgot to say that I have also tried the two step verification process indicated by @kaykaykay. No luck. Also on 5.1.1, new iPad and iPhone 4s.

    Also tried different wifi networks. On the same wifi my wife's iPhone works well. Grrr! As @kaykaykay says, the default process involves no imap prefix (just a slash) and port 993. It is like this now. Well, at least I can access gmail from Safari.....

    I am having the exact same problem, I did not change password or mess around with settings. My ipad1, iphone 4s, and macbook pro mail app have all stopped working as of the morning of august 9, 2012. Have tried everything, but nothing seems to work, I can still access gmail from safari.. ***?!?!

    Just saw this article on CNET. Might help, or might just let you know you are not being ignored.

    This what I posted on post 19, but two users have since said that didn't help them, so there's probably more than one problem out there, requiring other solutions.
